Software. Everyware: Sera’s perspective
The impact of medical software
As the manager for the Rational digital team, I spend most of my time learning about and deploying social media and Internet technologies. When I was challenged, along with my peers, to think about the ways software had affected me personally, I thought less about my job, and more about my family.
My niece was born with a heart problem that resulted in several surgeries during her first six weeks, and more later in her first year. Every time I visited her in the intensive care unit, I was struck by the huge monitoring devices that helped doctors and nurses watch over this treasured child. Thanks to the technology in those devices (and a great many skilled and loving humans), Kira is now a happy, rowdy, seven-year old.
I’m proud to be part of a team that in some small way assists companies in developing software and tools that save lives. Learn more about Rational software solutions for medical devices.
